Aesthetic Realism Online Library Poetry by Eli Siegel

Existence Is Worthy of Love

On that day,

After so many,

Dandelions shone in the sun,

With a nice, quiet, wide green,

And a brook running so sweetly, sweetly, noisily, sweetly;

And the ages came to all this.

Pleasing dandelions,

Pleasing green, nice quiet grass,

Pleasing brooks.

Such beautiful ages;

Such sweetly-doing existence.

Existence is praiseworthy;

Existence is worthy of esteem;

Existence, having dandelions, shone on by the sun, dandelions near quiet, sweetly noisy brooks; existence is worthy of love.

Existence is worthy of love.
